Try to first stop a whole Swazoo, then do that nightly cleanup so that 
there won't be any HTTPRequest anywhere, then maybe you'll be able to 
garbage collect it. It seems that we have somewhere in Swazoo object 
references, which don't "die" and hold references to the AIDASite. I 
also had similar problem and so far didn't manage to solve it.

This problem also arise when you try to serialize a whole AIDASite to 
disk (with BOSS in VW for instance). Because of such dangling references 
  you don't serialize only desired AIDASite but a whole SwazooServer 
with all other sites. This problem is definitely worth looking at...
